Some of Hawaii’s most influential corporations, labor unions and individuals are among those who contributed $365,550 to help pay for Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s inaugural luau, swearing-in ceremony and a transition team that aided the mayor with selecting his Cabinet, according to information released by the committee today.

The Mayoral Transition Committee, registered by Caldwell supporters with the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs as a tax-exempt organization, has so far spent $174,274.14, much of it on an inaugural luau that took place Saturday night at Moanalua Gardens.

Among the major contributors were Castle & Cooke Homes Hawaii, Hilton Worldwide, Mitsunaga & Associates, Outrigger Enterprises and United Public Workers union.
